Main competences of BD SENSORS realized via its CSRC Space Division are summarized as follows:
Special focus is put on “Electronics PCB Assembly for Space Applications” realized in the frame of the space qualified manufacturing in accordance with the ESA ECSS standards covering both:
The Space Electronics Manufacturing Unit includes highly qualified staff with the ESA ECSS certificates:
The whole “Space PCB Assembly” process consists of complete set of ESA-qualified manufacturing procedures covering initial “PCB Kitting” up to final “PCB Delivery” to the Customer.
Manual and Automated PCB Soldering & Assembly
BB, E(Q)M, PFM, FM
100.000 class, 170 m2 + 40m2 cleanroom area including soldering & inspection workstations certified by ESA
ESA certified operators and inspectors according to the ESA standard called ECSS-Q-ST-70-08, -38, -26 and -28.
All include both the cat.2 (inspectors) and the cat.3 (operators).
Complied with ECSS-Q-70-08, -38, -26 and -28.
PCB Assembly of Flight Electronics is the traditional & core activity having been developed since 1994. The CSRC cleanroom located in Kromeriz was the very first ESA qualified facility for manual space electronics PCB assembly in the Czech Republic.
To increase the manufacturing power and capabilities BD SENSORS built-up the very first space qualified automatic PCB assembly line in the Czech Republic located in Buchlovice.
The automatic assembly line is installed in cleanroom ISO class 8. The line consists of both complementary machine and additional hand soldering technology. For the additional hand soldering activities minimum of 4 new workplaces are included. In addition, there are workplaces for all activities which are necessary for completion of the Flight Units including mechanical integration, gluing, harness, crimping, electrical testing, etc.
The complete production line for ECSS-qualified electronics assembly covers the following process:
Machine soldering is based on:
Additional hand soldering workplaces are equipped:
Assembly line consists of the following workplaces:
